Illinois Judge Expelled from Bench After Reversing Fake “Sexual Assault” Conviction

The system doesn’t work.

You are being controlled by the whims of out-of-work journalists on Twitter.

That’s the situation.

The Congress is broken, the executive is broken, the judiciary is broken.

The entire system is destroyed.

If you get a fair hearing before a judge, they will just fire the judge.

New York Post:

The Illinois judge who reversed a teen’s sexual assault conviction in a shocking move that sparked nationwide outrage has been expelled from the bench.

Robert Adrian will no longer serve as a judge after the seven-member Illinois Court Commission removed him from the bench Friday for reversing the conviction of Drew Clinton, then 18, at his January 2022 sentencing hearing.

Adrian had found Clinton guilty of sexually assaulting Cameron Vaughan, then 16, while she was unconscious at a 2021 graduation party.

However, when it came time to sentence the convicted sexual predator, the judge had a sudden change of heart. Adrian testified that he felt Clinton — having already served nearly five months in county jail while his case worked its way through the court system — already served his punishment.

That’s not a “change of heart.” It’s a recognition of time served.

But the judge was not following the law, which states that the conviction carries a mandatory sentence of at least four years and he would be required to impose the term.

In order “to circumvent the law,” Adrian decided his only option was to reconsider his previous verdict and find Clinton not guilty, according to the commission’s report detailing its decision to expel the veteran judge.

Well, he wasn’t guilty.

After providing options that were “not going to solve the problem” of having to send the teen to prison, Adrian said at the sentencing that the prosecutors “failed to prove their case.”

The stunning move outraged advocates against sexual violence as well as Vaughan and her family. It spurred the distraught teenager to go public with her story after she felt the justice system failed her.

“I woke up at my friend’s place with a pillow over my face so I couldn’t be heard and Drew Clinton inside of me,” Vaughan said at the time, WGEM reported.

I asked him to stop multiple times and he wouldn’t. I finally got off the couch and pushed him off of me and he jumped up and just started playing video games as if nothing had happened,” she said.

Bitch, nothing did happen.

You passed out drunk at a party.

Grow up.
